For anyone travelling the A303-M3 route, point C on the map is the "Lakeside Garden Centre" a right turn for anyone with Jay, there should be a sign on the road for "Grays Carpets" it's his carpark we are invading
After you leave the main road it's the 1st carpark on the left, I will be there early and will wave down any passing Alfas, just hope they are part of the convoy

Jay just looked at your exit point on the A303 to meet me, you would be better going to the next junction and along the A350, it's a much better road.

Well at least it's one of the 'better' modern Pugs, I had a coupe....lovely motor

Maybe you could put an Alfa sticker on the bonnet, just for that part of the trip

Good stuff, I don't know that stretch really, but the more 'good' roads along the way, the better
